  • Description

    This recital gathers several varieties of occasional music (some quite ephemeral pieces cheek by jowl with more enduring creations and transcriptions) together with some of Liszt's earlier versions of pieces better known today as he finally offered them.
    The student drinking-song Gaudeamus igitur ('And so let us rejoice') is here presented in two amusing and technically daring guises, and joined by various pieces Leslie Howard describes as 'pleasant and utterly unimportant trifles'; the resulting programme is, of course, charming.
    All of the music on this album is also available as part of the specially priced box set Liszt: Complete Piano Music: 'Almost any way you choose to look at it, this is a staggering achievement â€¦ the grand scope of this project gives us the chance, as listeners, to experience the almost incomprehensible breadth and depth of Liszt's imagination' (International Record Review).
